This is a wonderful chicken recipe. The chicken falls apart into the sauce once plated. Excellent with rice even better with my homemade rice pilaf. I have posted this recipe as well under Elaine's Rice Pilaf.

This is fabulous, only a few ingredients but really great flavour & easy to do, even toddler DD gobbled this up for the kid-friendly challenge. I also think some white wine would go nicely in this sauce. Thanks for posting!
